I'd have her call and ask if it's so important that they'll let her move her appointment earlier, like tomorrow AM or something.

If they say no, bam there's your answer. If they say yes, then yes you can start worrying.

when my cardiologist said "can we meet tomorrow?"...I knew it was important.

other than that, we schedule a week out, at the next appointment, or he says "you're good...come in on your regular appointment"

Where she get the CT scan at? If it was a separate office you can go there and request the report from it.

I have seen this tactic done before in order to get another co-pay out of the patient...pretty scummy.
No, it's just paying for the physician's time. Try calling your lawyer for 15 minutes and see if they talk to you for free :rofl: mine charge $100 for a 15 minute conversation.

If I called every person with their test results and talked them through it, I could spend an hour or two of completely unpaid time there. My days are already full, so there's no time for that. If you want your test results with no interpretation, you're welcome to contact the facility that did the test and simply request the results. They have to give them to you. But they won't come with your physician's input.

If it's simply a normal result, I often just have my nurse call and say "It was normal."

Yep the 20 bucks is worth dealing with most of modern humanity

Might be $20 out of your pocket but they can bill insurance for a specialist office visit for much more $$. Standard practice these days.

@Buzz Killington Has she register with the hospital / health system's online portal? If so the results should be there. Now it's another matter if you can read and interpret them correctly. Best of luck!
